Catalan term or phrase: caràcter pactista
I can't find any reference to this that doesn't reference Catalonia. There must be a more common term. TIA!!

Normes que, encara que van ser promulgades pel Poder Legislatiu o pel Poder Executiu en l'àmbit de la seva competència normativa, van ser gestades de comú acord amb les diferents confessions (caràcter pactista) o, almenys, van tenir en compte el seu parer.

Regulations that were administered by common agreement with the different relgions (pactism), or at least they took their opinion into account, although they were issued by legislative or executive branches in the area of their normative competence

English translation:in a spirit of compromise
Explanation:
"Regulations, though proposed by the Legislature or the Executive branch (working within their areas of competence), were initially drawn up, in a spirit of compromise, by different faiths, or at least their views were taken into account in consulations".

I think that's what they are trying to say (in simpler English).

Thanks Bernie! I still haven't written the final draft, but I think this guy's goal in life is to coin a term (desacralisation, desecularisation, reconsecration, are some of his gems). It seems to be a kind of one-upmanship game in this field. So, I may try to help him out (and add an explanation to go with the word). I'll see how it sounds. Cheers!
